Review

Dusang, suffering from face blindness, comes to Seoul to find his first love. He works as a delivery guy at a Chinese restaurant near her college. One day, he is hit and ran by a woman who looks like his first love.
Saem is a unique comedy. What is the meaning of finding his first love when he can’t tell the difference in how she looks? If one's appearance doesn't hint anything about his/her identity, it's like living in vanity in everyday life. In his first feature film, Hwang Kyuil unfolds a series of unfamiliar, dumbfounding plots to tactfully satirize the perpetuity of relationship while portraying his romantic view of love. Ryu Sunyoung who received attention for Our Love Story last year embodies an interesting character who offers continuous care and curiosity for the protagonist. [KIM Youngjin]
